World Intellectual Property Day History

World Intellectual Property Day seeks to raise awareness about the importance of intellectual property and its role in encouraging innovation and creativity. Intellectual property consists of inventions or creations. They can range from literary and artistic works to names or images. They are protected by laws such as patents, copyrights, and trademarks. These allow the original creators to earn recognition or financial benefit from their inventions and creations. This day hopes to encourage artists, entrepreneurs, researchers, and all other creatives to pursue their ideas with the knowledge that their work will be legally protected.

World Intellectual Property Day was established in 2000 by the World Intellectual Property Organization. It is observed annually on April 26th.
